Below is the offical Suzuki headlight spec for a 2018 Vstrom 1000. You can get for $45 each the 3rd generation LED plug and play H-7 and H-9 lamps from ADV Rocket, link below. I have this product in my 650K7 and would not have anything else. There is no fan and the metal, bendable lattice you see is the heat sink. BUT, I would contact John Sanford, the engineer-owner and ask about the 2018 Vstrom fit. It is very important the actual light source on the LED be in the same physical place as on the OEM. Because, light performance is nearly entirely dependent upon the reflector inside headlight bucket. You can remove the OEM bulb or just look at it from the outside see if the beam emitter points up or down on the low beam and the high beam points up or down. ANY retrofit must be oriented the same as the OEM or you will get scatter or worse. Many on this forum have had that problem. In most respects, any H-7 and H-9 will have the same mounting design and the same beam emitter design. I use John's 2G H-4 and it is identical with the beam emitters on the OEM but G1 was off some and worked ok but not really good like the G2 does. I was recently on a road in MT near a river at dark dusk and on HB I could see the trees on both sides of the road and clouds of millions of insects but that is not scatter: it's lots of lumens. The H-7 LED puts out 4800 lumen at about 25 watts and the H-9 is the same: together you'd be running a landing light and you'd like it. But beware the interaction between the reflector and emitter.

Just placed the order for Cyclops h7 LED bulb. Will see how's the light pattern.
The bulb has just arrived this afternoon, my last day off. I have days off again from 28th of December so no time to do anything before that. As soon as I install it, I'll write down the review.
Mine has a cooling fan and no cuts and fitted under the dust cap. Usually people wrap the braids between the back of the reflector and the case.I fixed my LED install with RTV sealant. Cut a 25mm hole in the dust cover that goes over the low beam, passed the heat sink braid through it, then sealed with RTV. Just waiting for it to fully cure (24hours), before putting it all back together (dash back on). Not entirely happy having to use RTV, but, it is the best I could think of given how the heat sink braid runs.
That was not an option. The braid would have folded back, but the electronic package that was included on the connection cable made that impossible.Mine has a cooling fan and no cuts and fitted under the dust cap. Usually people wrap the braids between the back of the reflector and the case.
